The opening pair of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner are most important players for SRH. Almost all the matches that SRH has won are due to fabulous innings of these two players. Jonny Bairstow has played 10 matches and scored 445 runs with an average of 55.62. He is the second highest run scorer in IPL 2019 after his partner David Warner.
Yesterday match against CSK was last match of Jonny Bairstiow. In few days before this month ends David Warner will also leave SRH, leaving behind SRH without their regular openers. SRH batting line-up may become too weak after these two players will leave.
It was not a good farewell for Jonny Bairstow as he got out without scoring a single run. His team also lost the match. During the innings break he had a conversation with official broadcaster’s anchor. When it was asked to him how his experience in IPL 2019 was, he said that he loved it. He said “Absolutely loved it. Not my day today but the experience has been unbelievable. The guys here at Sunrisers have been really good. Lot to learn from, I think the main thing is to have confidence in your own ability. Top of the order, going out there and playing the way you like. Today it didn’t come off but I think the boys have done well.”
Talking about his partner David Warner, he said “It’s been fantastic batting at the top of the order with him. If he gets off to a flier, I like to take my time and vice versa. He’s been brilliant, to play like that from the start and hold the innings together, in this heat, it’s been great from him.”
The duo of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow have notched up 738 runs from 10 matches this season. They are responsible most victories of SRH this season. Their absence will definitely affect SRH.
